? two polls gave two different views. one showed ryan 48% to 44% ahead. cbs news' flash poll gave biden the win with 50% compared to 31% for ryan and 19% called the debate a tie. for a look at some of the highlights, we go to steve handelsman at the debate sight in danville, kentucky. good morning. >> reporter: good morning from danville, kentucky where they differ sharply on practically all the big issues. these are smart, well informed politicians. paul rye yand and joe biden had reason to feel good last night. a long time democratic insider versus a republican young gun whose ticket has new momentum. mitt romney was watching, barack obama, too. the moderator from abc. they tangled on iran. >> they are closer to a nuclear weapon. >> we will not allow the iranians to get a nuclear weapon. you gonna go to war? is that what you want to do now? >> we want to prevent war. >> what about 47% of americans feeling entitled to benefits. >> i think the vice president knows sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. so does romney. >> what abo
a snap poll in terms of results from tonight's debate. cbs news did a flash poll of uncommitted voters on who they think won tonight's debate. 19% of those voters said the debate was a tie. 31% say that paul ryan won. 50% say that vice president biden won. we're going to be joined in a moment -- we've talked to a couple of people who are functioning as surrogates for the obama campaign tonight. we're going to be speaking with a supporter of ryan and romney in just a moment, congresswoman marsha blackburn in a moment. while we get her to a microphone, i want to get response from you guys to that poll. that comports my feelings about who won the debate. steve, as a republican, does that feel like a reasonable response? >> undecided voters, i certainly think it's in the realm of possibility. you have to look at where all the flash polls are. the thing to remember, just like last week, those undecided voters, they will break to the winner side over the next 48 hours. that lead will spread. if, in fact, there's a 20-point lead off of the flash polls on average with 20% undecided by the time
-point reversal from a week ago. >>> and according to a "new york times"/cbs poll, mitt romney leads the president by one point in colorado. last month the president was up one point in that state. in virginia, president obama's lead from last month grew slightly. he's now up 51%-46%. and in wisconsin, the candidates are within the margin of error after the president lost a point from last month and mitt romney gained two. in all three battleground states, voters by double digits believe the economy is getting better compared to the numbers back in july. >> and mark halperin, that may be the big takeaway from this poll. the race is getting much closer. nobody can predict what's going to happen. if you look at a big friend, thoug trend, you've got to look at a lot of americans in these swing states are looking at the economy saying things are getting better. >> it's clearly a huge factor and yet, obviously, the debate from denver is also a huge factor. i think, you know, we look a lot at the margin of error, and these numbers aren't shifting all that much. what's key is in a lot of the states the p
four weeks. and this round from cbs quinnipiac and the "new york times" shows the president may be leading where it counts most, issues important to the middle class. joining me now is peter brown. thanks for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> voters are were asked who cares more about the needs of people like you and the president leads in all three states, colorado, virginia, and wisconsin. the preference for the president is small in colorado, with you still president. are romney's recent beefed up efforts as we see him try to be more folksy, if you will, to woo the middle qulas, is that not working? >> it seems to be working a little bit. throughout the campaign, the president has scored much better on person about al qualities than has mr. romney. the pattern since mr. romney won the nomination has been he was able to compete on the issue of the economy, but on a host of other issues and a host of personal characteristics, the president was ahead. and that has helped him stay ahead in the horse race polls. what you've seen since the first debate obviously is in some plac places
by the democrats if in fact biden performed well last night there was a cbs poll done and half of them said that biden won as opposed to a quarter or third said that ryan won. a new poll just got released just as i was heading over here, a reuter's poll, and that showed that biden won. two of the three polls that have been released show that voters gave biden the edge. it also, you know, really pokes a hole in this myth of ryan as somebody who, you know, says what he means when he's talking about the facts because he really hedged in a lot of places. he didn't offer clear distinctions with the president on their foreign policy. in numerous cases he dodged a question as the campaign has repeatedly on what kind of taxes they would support. so there's a lot of places where -- and obviously the thing that we were talking about, the stimulus letter. it pokes a hole that ryan is a policy purist. >> now, talking about where he pauses, it was revealing that he had a long pause when he was asked about abortion rights under the romney/ryan administration. watch this. >> if the romney/ryan ticket is e
over the last few days, in our polling, in ohio, florida, and virginia, in the cbs/"new york times" polling, it feels like everything has moved to what i would call preconvention, right, before there was a democratic bounce, and before there was any sort of romney bounce, where this is a close race, but when you look in the battleground states there seems to be still a small advantage for the president. look at ohio. i think the most important number of the polls we had today was this early voting result that we found where one in five ohioans have already voted and the president's winning 2-1 among those folks that have already voted. that's a big organizational advantage. he's banking some vote. that's a big deal, and that's an important result to look at. i also think there's some other trend here that i want to keep an eye on which is it seems romney got a bigger bounce in the national polls than we're seeing in some of these states and could it be that there was more room for him to grow in the non-battleground states than there was in the battleground states where there's bee
, the swing voters. >> let me give you some of the immediate reaction from people who watched the debate. cbs news asked the question after the debate who won. 50% said joe biden 31% said paul ryan. cnn had a poll as well. who won? paul ryan 48%, joe biden 44%. cnn parentally republicans were oversampled more than usual in a cnn poll. so that may be why that number's high up. and i'm going to give david and jonathan a chance to catch their breath and get your analysis. i've been flying all morning long and i'm not into man fights. this notion, the headline will be can president obama duplicate, replicate, pick up where biden left off, that is what matters here. >> i think that will be the headline starting tomorrow. we done the have to wait till tuesday. >> right. >> the fact that there's no unanimity of agreement like last week. last week everybody knew what happened, democrats, republicans alike agree, it had not been president obama's best night. last night both sides are defending their guy and i think it was probably close to being a quote, unquote, tie. but it doesn't really matter if i
, working bipartisanly? 7% rating? >> mitt romney -- >> a recent cbs/"new york times" poll puts disapproval of congress an eye-popping 75%. let's go ahead and bring in today's brain trust. syndicated columnist bob franken, and the "washington post's" jennifer rubin, also a contributor to cnbc's "kudlow report." good saturday afternoon to all of you. kevin, i want to start with you. you're here in the studio with me. you wrote a piece. it's titled why vote. >> yeah. >> my ap government politics teach worry have a fit with this one. but in the article you say in part, quote, for more than a generation, this has been the central truth of american politics. how you cast your vote has almost no relation to what any candidate actually intends to do. do you truly believe that no americans can no longer count on the men and women they vote for to live up to their campaign promise? >> i do. there is a tremendous disconnect from the people at the head of the parties and the people we put into office, and a lot of their base. more so in the democratic party. but also even if you're a republican and yo

and kcci "des moine register" is cosponsoring this debate. the cbs program survivor can be seen or recorded on channel 8 at 2:07 or on line at cbs.com. >> moderator: a brief explanation of the procedures we will follow tonight. it will be fairly informal but we have a few rules to keep things on track. the only time clock will be for the opening closing statements and the candidates each have one minute and 45 seconds for their closing statements. in between kevin and i will ask questions and read questions from readers and viewers. there are no time limits on the candidates but we are going to encourage people to stay on point to weaken covers many issues as possible. >> moderator: a few minutes ago du quoin -- was won by the boswell cope cashman campaign. congressman latham will begin the opening statements and you have one minute. latham: thank you very much for the chance to be here tonight, for hosting this debate. i am tom latham. i am a husband, father, grandfather, small business person, a farmer and that is what my life experience is. everyone understands today that we have real se
for president of the united states he went on vacation in europe and daniel schorr, "cbs evening news." foreign correspondent reported that barry goldwater's planned trip to europe was really a clandestine effort to meet up with neo-nazi elements in hitler's stomping ground in order to coordinate the fall campaign. goldwater actually sued and won which is one of the very few times we ever get liabled or slandered by the press and get punishment for it. since 1987 the media research center has been documenting these attacks and providing fodder for people like me and others to sort of turn the tables on them. the more, the trend has always been more you admire a leader, conservative leader like goldwater or reagan or clarence thomas or jesse helms or rush limbaugh the entire congressional class of 1994 or the tea party movement most of the united states, western civilization, basically anything that is on the side of truth, justice and the american way we get demonized for it and treated as if we're some sort of other worldly evil creatures. so tonight we give you some snippets down memory rain
outlets abc, cbs, nbc, cnn, all planned to use split screens regularly. fox said it would even continue using it more than it did in the presidential debate. in denver, some of the candidates have tried in the past with limited success. using reaction shots of candidates. aides to bill clinton -- aides to bill clinton and president george bush in 1992 when as far to write into their debate contract that television networks could not broadcast such images. the campaigns of senator john kerry and president george w. bush -- the non-partisan organization that oversees the production, while the submission has final say over where those cameras are in place, they do not control the mechanics of filling camera angles or rigid of filming camera angles." that work is left solely to the discretion of the network pool producing the broadcast. last week it was abc, on thursday it was cnn." c-span was the first to start using split screens in 2000 when al gore was debating george w. bush, and the article in "the new york times" notes -- "the split screen has become such a modern media phenomenon, p
